Zwilling Pro Knives
A Reputation of Quality
Zwilling J.A. Henckels knife company of Germany has long held a reputation for well built, durable knives, scissors and flatware. Established in 1731, the Henckels brand is still recognized today as one of the world’s most trusted knife makers.
Intricately Designed & Refined
In keeping with the traditional look of Henckels knives, the new Zwilling Pro line has been carefully designed by Italian designer and architect Matteo Thun.
Intricate design details make these the best Henckels knives yet. Improved ergonomic handles make the knife feel like an extension of the hand, thanks to the seamless transition from blade to handle. The blade shape has also been modified, adding a more pronounced curve at the tip, making rocking chopping with cooking knives effortless.
The full Zwilling Pro line includes a total of 17 different knife types, from cooking knives to Santoku knives.
Knife Care Tips
- Do not store knives loose in a drawer! The best way to store knives is in a wooden block or in individual sheaths.
- Wash your knives with warm soapy water after every use, and dry completely with a clean cloth to prevent rusting.
- Avoid hard cutting surfaces that will damage the edge of your blade. Opt instead for softer surfaces like wood or bamboo.
- Hone your knife regularly with a knife steel (not to be confused with sharpening). Honing helps to maintain a sharp edge by correcting slight bends to the sharp edge of the blade that occur in everyday use, and can cause the blade to seem less sharp.
